Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God Posts

Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverb 3: 5 – 6


Pastor Ike witnesses a miracle every Sunday.  It happens when he stands in his pulpit to preach.  He spends almost every other minute of his life in a wheel chair.

You see Ike has broken his neck three times. Once in Vietnam, another in an automobile accident.  The third time occurred when an iron beam crushed him.  The doctors said he’d never walk again.

But during his recovery, he prayed,

Lord, I’m yours, for whatever I might still be good for.  But please let me stand in the pulpit if I am to preach.”

God granted that prayer.  And Pastor Ike praises God for getting his attention.

Dear friend, God wants your attention too!  Read your Bible.  Praise and thank Him for working in your life.  Expect your miracle!

Make no mistake. The devil is a real devil!


Every conflict is a contest with Satan and his forces.  For that reason the Bible says,

though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds”  (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).

What are these weapons?  Prayer, worship, and Scripture.  When we pray, we engage the power of God against the devil.  When we worship, we do what Satan did not do.  We place God on the throne.  When we pick up the sword of Scripture, we do what Jesus did in the wilderness.  He responded to Satan by proclaiming truth.  And since Satan has a severe allergy to truth, he left Jesus alone. Satan will not linger long where God is praised and prayers are offered. And because God’s promises are unbreakable, our hope is unshakable!
